Churchill Bros lose Bilal Sheikh El Najjarin to UAE club

I-League leaders Churchill Brothers SC will have to continue their quest for regaining the I-League title without Lebanese defender Bilal Sheikh El Najjarin, who yesterday played his last game for the Goans against Mumbai FC and will now join UAE Pro League side Fujairah SC.

31 year old Bilal has been a standout performer for Churchill Brothers this season amongst an incredibly strong quartet of foreigners which also include Brazilian Beto, Gabon striker Henry and fellow Lebanese Akram.

Bilal had a clause in his one year contract under which he could leave the Goans, if he received a better offer which came his way from Fujairah SC. By signing in the Emirates, Bilal will play in a stronger league with better pay and facilities plus he is closer to his home country Lebanon.

Churchill Brothers are now scouting the international market for a suitable replacement, then Bilal held the Red Machine defence together and he was one of the reasons why the club is top of the I-League.

Now technical director Subhas Bhowmick and coach Mariano Dias will most likely have to plan the upcoming match(es) without a foreign defender with D. Ravanan having to take a leading role in his teams defence.
